We have a new dentist who I really like. Unfortunately, he also is downright funny. I am not an anti-dentite or anything, but a funny dentist need not be funny while dentisting.
The dentist had numbed the bottom half of my mouth. From my viewpoint, there was a clamp on my gum that looked a little like a rounded clothespin with a small Betty Boop logo on it. (Again, I could only see it by looking straight down my nose. It was a weird angle.) I also had 3 large pieces of guaze pads surrounding the tooth that was to be excavated. I was in no position to be entertained.
While preparing his dentist devices and tools, the dentist begins to tell me about how he had purchased some old Kung Fu movies that he loved as a boy. He then goes on to explain how he took these Kung Fu movies on a road trip recently with his four boys (ages 4 - 15). He then starts talking like one of his boys in a high sing song voice. "Dad, this movie is really boring! Dad, they aren't even really punching each other. I don't understand anything they are saying Dad!"
Okay, this may not be funny just reading it, but while your dentist is standing over you with a pick ax and a 30 bit drill, it can become a little humorous. I began to chuckle and then a constant vocal laugh began to escape my pried open mouth. When I laughed, a gauze pad slipped slightly down my throat and I began to cough. The dentist then says to me, "Now really is not the time to laugh." I gathered myself and replied, "Uh, owka, sowee."
